    Something is making your bowel muscles go into spasms. It could be food poisoning, a bug, gastritis. or any number of bowel conditions, like IBS. When I had gastritis it took 3 months to settle, and when I had Diverticulitis, it was over a month. Your doctor will soon set your mind at rest.

    Since this is Sunday, you don't have long to wait for your doctor's appointment. Try to stay as calm as possible so as not to irritate your stomach further. Only your doctor can tell you exactly what is wrong. It could be any number of things including gastritis or IBS which are both triggered by anxiety.

    I had similar symptoms to you and I had gastritis, a hiatus hernia and oesophagitis. It was helped by ppi tablets but the only ones that really worked were esomeprazole though. There are certain foods and drinks which can upset your stomach more than others. Try and avoid acidic foods and drinks like citrus fruits and juices, carbonated drinks, caffeine, sugar and pickles. Also alcohol and fatty foods can be a problem. Anything you can think that repeats on you, try and avoid it until your stomach is better. Then just limit it because it can make your symptoms come back.
